From Coach Penny:
“I’m very proud of our first performance of the season. Considering last season was a fresh start and having to fill a team with student athletes who had little or no golf experience, I’m grateful to be where we are. We have a busy schedule and I’m excited to see where these young people take our show this season.”
The Rams golf team will be in competition next week at the HBCU Golf Invitational in Braselton, Georgia.
